More Hair-Removal Innovations To Keep You Smooth Even After The Summer
October 21, 2008
Today on Better.tv, SheFinds shows you some of the newest ways to de-fuzz – plus the products that prepare your skin and sooth you afterwards, so you can enjoy your newfound smoothness by actually showing it off.
If you’re going to be shaving, SkinMilk Shaving Milk ($5.59) will protect your legs from razor burn by forming a moisturizing barrier between your skin and that scary blade. Eos Shave Cream ($5.59) is also super moisturizing – so much so that the company claims you can use it dry. And if you’re really devoted to prepping, try Soap & Glory’s FlakeAway Scrub ($12) – all the luxury of a fancy scrub without the price tag.
More gentle than wax, sugaring uses a natural formula made from sugar, lemon juice and water. The Shobha Sugaring Kit ($25) includes denim strips that are machine washable and re-usable, so you can really up the eco-friendly ante. A more techy option, the no!no! ($250) uses heat technology to painlessly get rid of fuzz. It takes time to execute correctly, but there’s no razor burn and no mess. Finally, the depilatory of yore gets a much-needed update in Nair Shower Power ($7.49), with a formula that stays on legs while you shower – saving all that standing-around time – and only comes off once you rub it with the included sponge.
Shobha’s exfoliating washcloth ($15), made from all-natural fibers, will keep those waxed and shaved areas smooth and bump-free. Whish Flawless Bump Fighter ($22.50) is a completely luxurious way to deliver ingrown-hair-fighting ingredients – many of which are completely natural, like papaya extract and willow bark.
